Our Mission

We are the rising tide for all participants in the connected device supply chain, dedicated to ensuring that technology, which might otherwise languish in forgotten drawers and pollute our planet, finds its way into the hands who seek to be connected.

Our Vision

Devices connect the world. We help ensure there will still be a world to connect.
Apkudo enables companies that sell or manage connected devices to maximize value from resale, repair, and reuse while eliminating e-waste.

Instead of relying on extensive labor and a patchwork of re-purposed systems, Apkudo provides a fully integrated solution to ensure that items such as mobile phones, tablets, watches, laptops, and wireless earphones move smoothly to the highest-value outcomes.

Apkudo’s Circular Industry Platform includes the full suite of decision-support and operating tools: automated testing and grading systems, device lifecycle management, and resale market integration.

As a result, Apkudo customers always have the answer to the question, “What do I do with this device, right now?
We are the rising tide. We solve big, challenging problems with game-changing innovation because the supply chain can always be better. It's fun, and we're bloody good at it.
